If the room has an uneven contour then use Sectionals which serve a great purpose. They can be placed beside the sofa to add some guest space.
Side chairs should complement and supplement the existing décor. Over and above furniture should not become a hindrance to the room's passage.
Next beat up the table. Yes you read that right. There is no old country table that is in perfect condition which means you need to use the file or sandpaper to rough up the edges. If you want it to look well used you can use the hammer to make a few dings.
This is where wood console tables end up being a godsend. Because wood console tables are not only tables to put the things on that can be seen in a home but are generally made with drawers and shelves where you can tuck away things you would rather not have seen.
Cracking. One way to make wood console tables look old is to give them a cracked finish. Think about the look of an old table pulled out of a farm house after generations. The paint is starting to crack and break away from the surface. It used to be it took a lot of work to create this look but not anymore. There are 'crackle paints' or crackle additives to add to paint that will make this finish happen very easily. Often all you have to do is apply 1-2 coats and you will have created an antique look with ease.
If you are using one color of paint you may want to water it down to create a more 'whitewashed' look while painting.
